Coming this Autumn, things are getting a wee bit cold out here. It strikes me as a little bit odd that we’re getting the reveal now, at the start of Spring, but I ain’t complaining. Boasting 80 square kilometers of ground to explore, and enhanced fishing mechanics (important stuff)! Maybe we’ll see zombie sharks. Probably not, but still.

Official Press Release

Prague, 10th May 2024 – Bohemia Interactive is officially announcing the development of a second-ever DayZ expansion. DayZ Frostline is set to transform the survival experience this Fall. Offering exploration of the chilling Sakhal archipelago, the new content promises to push the players and their skills to their limits in a winter wonderland filled with danger and adventure.

In an area spanning over 80 km2, the survivors will encounter a landscape blanketed in snow, from thick forests to frozen lakes, each inch offering both beauty and danger. The expansion introduces new survival dynamics, challenging players to manage warmth and resources while exploring innovative structures, landmarks teeming with secrets, and encountering new animals adapted to the cold.

Key Features of Frostline expansion:

New Terrain: Discover an untouched archipelago where time stands still.

Winter Landscape: Experience a late winter setting.

Harsher Survival: Manage warmth and hunt for sustenance.

Environmental Hazards: Discover hazards of living near volcanic areas.

Richer Wilderness: Meet new wildlife species adapted to the cold.

New Gameplay Mechanics: Take on new diseases and an enhanced fishing mechanic.

Winter Cosmetics: Dress for the season with winter-themed cosmetics.

About Bohemia Interactive

Our story began with our first game, Arma: Cold War Assault, released back in 2001. Developed by just a handful of people, this PC-exclusive title became a massive success. It sold well over a million copies, received numerous industry awards, and was praised by critics and players alike. Since then, we’ve grown from a ragtag bunch of garage devs to an international family of over 400 professionals, working on Arma 3, Arma 4, Arma Reforger, DayZ, Ylands, Vigor, our proprietary Enfusion engine, and various other projects. Our ambition: to make games that act as platforms for people to explore, create, and connect.
